Same photographer See all

Behind The Lens

This photo is actually a combination of several photos. All were taken in my home and small studio.
At that time I was using a Nikon D 3100 and a Nikkor 18-55mm......not because it was the best lens, but it was all I had then.
I wanted to try photo manipulation. This was my first.
Really? Oh yes! Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom were used extensively. Working a little at the time it took me three days to get something I was happy with.
In my camera bag
Depends on what I'm looking for. I've walked five mile for a shot at something....so pack lite. Something near and unknown.....take it all! Sometimes my sweet wife is my bearer.
I've never been one to have the latest and greatest equipment. Learn to get the most out of what you have, but upgrade as your learning curve increases and as a hobbyist you'll understand.when I say financially able. When you get comfortable with one aspect of photography, move to another. There are books and Youtube how to do this and that by the thousands....use them, but don't be afraid to move the camera settings. Use other photographers photos as guides and inspirations, but pave your on way into what you're looking for through that lens.....figure out your own style or signature of photography. Lastly.......have fun. If it's not fun, it's not worth messing with. And try to avoid having to say, "Darn, I wish I had my camera."
